Whole Foods. The average American has an income which is something like 25 per cent higher than that of an average European. Sometimes, one might wonder how this can be noticed in daily life. Some things are, after all, not better in the US.

The cars, and the number of cars per family, however, are a well-known sign of higher incomes. I noticed another yesterday evening, buying things to eat and drink in Whole Foods in Georgetown. Whole Foods is the world′s largest retailer in natural and organic foods. I usually don′t complain about the supermarkets or food retailers at home. But this felt like coming from a poor country to a very wealthy one. I think almost everything was better. There was more of all goods, quality was higher and most things were made for a healthy lifestyle.

Sometimes, it may be hard to really see what comes around the corner if growth is high. Other times, it is much easier to see the direct improvements in everyday life.
